The Mekong Delta Ben Tre introduces business potential in Chinaprovince hosted an investment-trade promotion workshop in Guangzhou on September 23, attracting farm product businesses from both countries.

Cao Van Trong, Vice Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee, spoke of Ben Tre’s advantages in terms of geographical location, favourable transportation, a young and skilled workforce, and a transparent investment environment.

The agriculture-based province has nearly 70,000 hectares of coconut trees, churning out 450 million fruits a year, and more than 40,000 hectares of aquatic farming, producing a total output of more than 150,000 tonnes annually.

These are the two priority areas that Ben Tre is calling on foreign businesses, including those from Guangzhou and China, to invest in, said Trong.

Ben Tre creates favourable conditions for Chinese businesses to operate in the long term for mutual benefits, he said.

China ranks ninth among foreign investors in the Mekong Delta province, with nine projects capitalised at US$8.2 million. These projects mostly focus on processing coconut products.

Two-way trade between Ben Tre and China has increased constantly over the years, from US$27.6 million in 2005 to US$71.5 million in 2011.
